President Donald Trump's niece, clinical psychologist Mary L. Trump, will release her tell-all family memoir next week after multiple attempts from the Trump family to block it.

Like many other books written by those within or with access to Trump's atmosphere, Too Much and Never Enough: How My Family Created the World's Most Dangerous Man paints a picture of the President that's anything but flattering.

Mary Trump describes a family for whom cheating is a principle. She alleges that Trump hired a boy named John Shapiro to take his SAT's. Ms. Trump—a clinical psychologist—says her uncle meets all the criteria for a pathological narcissist and that the term doesn't even fully cover the depths of his self absorption.

It may not come as a surprise, then, that the President's latest press secretary, Kayleigh McEnany, insists that the book is full of lies—although she hasn't seen it.

Watch below.

JUST IN: Kayleigh McEnany responds to Mary Trump

McEnany said of the book:

"It's ridiculous, absurd allegations that have absolutely no bearing in truth. I have yet to see the book, but it is a book of falsehoods."

The denial sounded just like one her boss might issue.

Whether it's his former national security advisor John Bolton's book or Fear, the book by the famed journalist Bob Woodward, the President of the United States commonly assures that these writers' pages are covered in lies.

McEnany's comments came just one day after she defended the President's bizarre tweet calling on Black NASCAR driver Bubba Wallace to apologize for the "hoax" of finding a noose on his garage door at Talladega Superspeedway. Wallace wasn't the one who found the noose and there was indeed a noose on the door.

Kayleigh claimed that Trump's tweet about Wallace was only meant to criticize the public's rush to judgment without having all the facts.

That was the same criticism people had for McEnany when she spoke with certainty about the book's contents without ever having seen it.

People soon began applying the same logic to other situations.

Mary Trump's book is set for publishing on July 14.
